Damilano Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi 2010
A touch of ash, some very nice fruit tones, very floral, herbal, spicy, slightly brambly red fruit. Sweet in the mouth on entry, a bit matte, nicely expressed fruit but a touch forced and compressed, low-key slightly weedy, slightly herbal, slightly green tomato-scented wild raspberry fruit. Hint of nettle and herb, a bit rich, and a touch clumsy perhaps but nice fruit. (86-87pts)Add winemaker's notes

Damilano’s 2006 Barolo Cannubi emerges from the glass with surprising richness and weight. Berries, flowers and spices flow effortlessly from this rich, textured Cannubi. The wine shows quite a bit more depth than is usually the case for a vineyard that tends towards the feminine, but the textural elegance and silkiness on the mid-palate and finish serve to provide a sense of proportion. Fine, elegant tannins frame the close. This is another fine effort from Damilano. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2026.
The prized Cannubi cru offers fruit that is interpreted by some of the finest winemakers in northern Italy. This expression from the dynamic Damilano winery is characterized by tight tannins, power, personality and ripe berry flavors. Pair this Barolo with risotto topped with thinly shaved truffles.
Starts out supple, with the smooth texture framing black cherry, bitter almond and licorice notes. A firm base of tannins is offset by sweet fruit, as this glides to a lingering aftertaste of tobacco, spice and cherry. Best from 2013 through 2032.
A rich and complex wine composed of 100% Nebbiolo born in a great year that is known for its early maturing and accessibility qualities.
The 2000 Barolo Cannubi, with notes of cinnamon, raisins, and chocolate in addition to its ripe red fruit is sweet and long on the palate, velvety but with a rising density which indicates another dozen years of satisfying drinking ahead. Drink 2005-2017.
Damilano is one of Barolo's historic wineries and Cannubi its most historic vineyard cru. All that history combines here to shape a traditional, yet New World wine with plush roundness and intense notes of spice, leather, pipe tobacco, polished red wood and black currant. It's luscious, velvety and tight in the mouth and will improve with age. Drink with venison or game.
Deep red with ruby tones. Aromas of marzipan, brown spices, dried rose and truffle. Suave and sweet, with a liqueur-like ripeness to the flavors of red fruits, marzipan, brown, spices, menthol and leather. Nicely integrated acidity accentuates the wine's inner-mouth perfume and contributes to an impression of firm structure. Tannins are fairly tough but ripe.
